I was on metformin 2000 and glyburide10 per day. I felt fine but my A1C went to 13.2 from 6.9. About 2 days after that I started feeling the tingling in my feet. On January 31st I started Lantus 10…Continue

"Is Lantus really right for you? You seem very insulin resistant. 40-48 units of Lantus is a whopping dose. I'm just wondering if there is something else out there to help with the resistance."

"You bet you. I might be a type 2 and I use tonnes of bolus insulin much more than the type 1. Only dangers is weight gain that needs strong counter measures. My lows are not a problem."

"Neuropathy is probably too pessimistic. Tingling in the feet could also be cause by too low blood sugar. Get a book called using insulin it will explain modern insulin treatment."

"Just to clarify, being Type 2 doesn't preclude the need for bolus insulin. The need is determined solely by blood sugar. If someone spikes two hours after eating on a regular basis, they need to take insulin to prevent those spikes. And I agree…"

"I am a type 2 - they said it was caused by stress from a bad DVT (blood clot). Today was a good day - Highest BG was 171. All the rest were under 138. Thanks for the reply."

"Are you a type 1 or a type 2?? My guess, based on your usage of metaformin previously, is that you are type 2, in which case you might not need to bolus for meals. Apologies if I am incorrect. Don't let anyone scare you about numbers, I really…"
